Badrock is a strong guy character (or "tank" as some put it) from Liefeld's Youngblood comics. Okay, could be worth a chuckle if done right. Liefeld responded (emphasis mine), "Ethan, I am retired from comics but you have my blessing, it would look great if you drew it."
A half hour later, Liefeld made these tweets:
"I am NOT retired from comics. Taking some time off and will be back at it soon. Thanks!
"No I am not permanently retired from comics. I'm too young! Momentarily, yes. Geez, let a guy enjoy some R and R
"My mistake is that I don't give facebook comments the same weight I do twitter rants. Lesson learned."
Oh, I don't know, it sounds like he gives them the exact same weight.
But still, Liefeld isn't retiring from comics.
